Lithium-Ion Batteries Make Tripp Lite's New SmartPro UPS Systems Lighter and More Resilient

Expanded lithium-ion UPS line gives IT managers even more power protection options.

CHICAGO, June 14, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power and connectivity solutions, has made power protection for critical IT infrastructure easier to manage with four new UPS systems in its SmartPro® series. These line-interactive rack-mount models contain lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries, a class of lithium-ion technology with high heat resistance that weighs 60% less and provides greater longevity than equivalent lead-acid batteries. These UPS models offer a "fit and forget" solution that is ideal for edge computing and other applications demanding years of maintenance-free service.

Batteries in these Tripp Lite UPS systems can recharge to 100% capacity in as little as 1.5 hours, compared to the 24 hours it typically takes for a lead-acid counterpart.

"This is a game changer for power protection in applications where blackouts and brownouts are recurring threats," said David Slotten, Tripp Lite's Vice President of Product Marketing. "Lithium delivers much more predictable service life than lead acid and, once power is restored, rapidly recharges to be ready to respond to subsequent outages."

IT professionals who are tired of the maintenance demands of their lead-acid battery UPS systems will appreciate the simpler requirements from these models. Their built-in battery management system (BMS) automatically monitors and controls energy flow in the battery pack, helping it last longer and ensuring safety. The UPS systems can be managed remotely as network devices and have the support of a 5-year standard warranty.

Key Features of Tripp Lite's Lithium-Ion UPS Systems:

  • LiFePO4 batteries perform more safely in extreme temperatures than other types of lithium-ion batteries
  • Longer lifespan and more charge/discharge cycles than equivalent lead-acid batteries
  • Remote management capability
  • 60% lighter than equivalent lead-acid batteries
